Winter School 2013
VariaForMea Winter School 2013
The doctoral school VariaForMea, supported by the CRUS (Rectors’ conference of the Swiss Universities), is happy to announce a 3-day Winter School in Macolin.
The VariaForMea winter school aims at bringing together linguistic PhD students from across Switzerland and at consolidating soft and hard skills in linguistic research, with a special focus on form-meaning variation and typologic approaches.
The school schedule will be organised flexibly, combining two main talks from the guest speaker, presentations from PhD students and informal discussions.
December 2-4, 2013.
